Marriott Downtown Syracuse Celebrates One Year Anniversary

Bridge Street

This week marks the first full active year of the renovated Marriott Syracuse Downtown, and there is a lot to celebrate! Owner Ed Riley supervised the two years and over $76 million that went into restoring the old Hotel Syracuse which has created more than 200 jobs – 60% of which are held by people from the neighborhood – and served as a real community hub for everything from weddings to the St. Patrick’s Parade. Everyone involved considers it a real honor to be such a part of regional life.

The hotel’s restaurants have already gained quite a reputation as excellent lunch and dinner selections, engaging the surrounding area in a particularly tasty way. All of the sites use local products, taking full advantage of what CNY has to offer, from basic ingredients all the way through to a range of Finger Lakes wines.

The process of bringing the hotel back to life was a long and ambitious one rooted in a bold ideal, but it has clearly paid off. A year in, things are already going strong and the focus remains on growth, continuing to ride the tremendous momentum that this first year has generated while still keeping a firm, stable footing where it always matters most: the community.
